Happy April!

Happy April, Happy Monday!

Today, my work is cut out for me. Got lots on my plate and not enough time to do it all, but I know everyone reading this says the same thing!

This past weekend I spent a lot of time researching pages for authors and today I wanna share them with you. I do have a lot of authors who frequent my blog, and like to give a heads up when I find something that will help plug your books, so here we go. I just posted this on my Facebook page:
The first 5 chapters of "Scattered Leaves: The Legend of Ghostkiller" are posted on Wattpad. Please go and vote for me there and become a fan if you like! Really pushing the book these days, gearing up for another FREE day for the eBook (last one) and also getting things ready for my poetry book that is almost ready to launch. It features my mother's poetry as well as my own, called "After the Glitter Fades- Wartime Poems and Other Musings." Hope you love it! Here's the link to Wattpad - if you've wondered what Scattered Leaves was all about, now's your chance to review it! ♥

Posting a few pages of your book for free is a great way to broaden your audience. People love free stuff, so giving away the eBook is another. I have found writing coaches who give away free advice that is actually GOOD advice and not just a scam to get you to buy their books. The writing community on the Internet is wonderful and there are lots of ways to better yourself and your writing out there just waiting for you to discover it! For instance:   

This Wattpad site is really great and I am enjoying finding my way around. There is also a site I discovered called Freado that is great for authors, too. It offers a 'lite' version that is free. It allows you to create widgets, email signatures and the like, and a flip book to embed on your site that's really cool. 

I have found that marketing is the hardest part of being self-published, but also that authors who sign with "the big six" have to do their own marketing, too. It's not too hard to find advice from them on the Internet, either. Just Google your favorite author and chances are, you'll find something that will help your journey along from them, as well.

So, it's short and sweet today, friends. I am busy with so much writing, I can hardly keep up! I think I have like 8 blogs now I am doing, plus 3 books! Most blogs are not launched yet, but when they are I'll post it here and on my mailing list. 

Have a great week!

Best,
Lynny Prince
